About William Saxton/Sexton

William Saxton/Sexton was born (unknown) and died between 29 August 1826 and February 1827 in Cabell County, (West) Virginia. He married Elizabeth Black, the daughter of Abraham Black and Elizabeth (unknown), 28 April 1801 in Greenbrier County, (West) Virginia. She was born Abt. 1781 in probably Fauquier County, Virginia and died between 1860 and 1870 in Cabell County, West Virginia.

To our knowledge there was only one Sexton family in Cabell County from its formation in 1809 until well into the latter part of the 19th century. William and Elizabeth were the progenitors of this Sexton family. We have come to this conclusion after researching many records of that time and area, and in spite of the existing belief that Abraham was the husband of the Elizabeth Saxton found in the 1830 Cabell census.
